I am nearly 16 weeks pg with #2 and have had a sinus infection and/or productive chesty cough for almost the whole time so far. Just this morning it morphed into a serious sinus congestion/cold thing that is driving me crazy. I am up all night trying to breathe or cough or blow my nose and I just want to feel better for a change! Can anyone recommend any good remedies (other than the Neti pot, I already do that daily) to clear my head and chest?
Mama to a sweet little redheaded girl, born 11/09; and my HBAC baby, little brother, born 7/12.
I was newly preggo last Feb right during my usual sinus infection period. Along with the netti pot, I megadosed my vit C intake - 1000mg every hr. Also a nice heafty garlic supplement helped. I would normally combine with Sambucol but I read a few inconclusive studies on the black elderberrry being a potential issue in pregnancy so I didn't want to chance it. To get real good drainage, I've always had luck with chiropractic. It's almost instant when I get an adjustment, I can feel the pressure dissipate.
